Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — As tough as moving forward is for people on the Gulf Coast, others who've worked with them say it's the only way to get back to life as usual.
Dr. Ed Overton has been on the front lines of the crisis on the coast, using data gathered in his lab to help organizations like NOAA and the Coast Guard.
